Update: Police have now reduced the charges against a Hattiesburg man jailed for felony child neglect.

Investigators say the felony charge against Quayshawn Durr, 22, was reduced to misdemeanor as the investigation continues.

The child was not harmed in the incident, and that's why the charge was downgraded.
